  5. U.S. Government Continues to Target Piracy in All Forms, Seizes 1,400 Halloween Costumes From China

    Assuming the image used by Today Health is accurate, it looks like 1,400 little girls won't be going out on Halloween as somewhat creepy pirates. U.S. Customs and Border Protection diverted the shipment of costumes to a warehouse for testing as they reached Seattle in September, but only just confirmed their suspicions: They are full of lead. There's a certain level of lead that's considered acceptable, but these Chinese costumes tested at 11 times the legal limit.

  8. After Taking on Classic Detectives, Guy Ritchie Will Try His Hand at Treasure Island’s Pirates

    Buckle Buckle Swash Swash

    After the most recent installment of Pirates of the Caribbean underwhelmed, could Guy Ritchie be the one to make pirates awesome again? News is out that he's set to direct an adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic swashbuckling novel Treasure Island. He'll produce with partner Lionel Wigram, with whom he teamed for Sherlock Holmes and its recent sequel. Hmm, let's see: these guys take a classic novel, add in kickass action sequences that feel modern but make total sense in a period movie, and then find a supremely charming star to take the lead. This has clearly worked once. And now -- pirates. Yeah, I think it's fair to be more than cautiously optimistic about this one.

  10. MIT Has Had a Secret Pirate Program This Whole Time

    Buckle Buckle Swash Swash

    For the past 20 years, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology -- better known as MIT -- has unofficially been offering a super secret athletic "program" for students who take a certain group of courses. Upon completing all of these course, they achieve a certain "scurvy-scum" status amongst their less inclined peers. Indeed, students who take and pass courses in "pistol, archery, sailing, and fencing" are deemed pirates. And while this was done by students just for kicks, MIT has decided not to ignore the swashbuckling that's been going on and will now issue these students actual, physical pirate certificates.
